About the Workshop
Stay tuned for more updates about the EMBO Workshop and follow the LinkedIn page EMBO Workshop 2023 Computational models of life: From molecular biology to digital twins
Single-cell and spatial omics have increased the data granularity available for understanding biological mechanisms as well as exponentially increasing the amount of biomedical data available. Modelling has helped biomedical projects by uncovering mechanisms behind drug synergies and personalizing drug treatments while allowing for the study of all scales, from molecules to cells to tissues to organs and even to whole bodies. High-Performance Computing (HPC) environments have enabled the scaling up of scientific computing allowing it to reach an unprecedented scope. HPC has become an essential tool in many fields due to its ability to power up data analysis, storage and large-scale processing.
This in-person 5-day EMBO Workshop will gather early-career researchers and field leaders at the crossroads of single-cell omics, modelling and HPC to pave the way for realistic, scalable human digital twins of cells, tissues and organs. Presentations and discussions around these rapidly-evolving topics will push the field forward by training researchers with techniques from neighbouring fields and allowing them to tackle problems using combined approaches.
Additionally, we will hold training courses and mentoring sessions to prepare a new generation of early-career researchers to address the fundamental problems of having realistic, scalable human digital twins.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
